The future of driving is looking electric. Like many other automakers, Chevrolet is dedicated to reducing emissions and making a greener tomorrow with electrification. It already has the Chevrolet Bolt EV, which is available at Cecil Atkission GM in Kerrville, Texas. Now, Chevy has announced that it is working on a powerful full-size electric pickup.
Autoblog noticed a reference to an electric Chevrolet truck in the General Motors 2019 Sustainability Report. On page 39 of the 179-page report, there’s mention of a Chevrolet BET Truck — BET likely standing for battery-electric truck — “which will be the brand’s first full-size pickup, offering 400+ miles of range on a single charge.”
The Chevrolet electric truck will be joined by the Bolt EUV, a crossover version of the Bolt set to go into production next summer, and an electric midsize SUV.
The report also mentions that Buick is going electric with a crossover and SUV. The former “will feature more expressive proportion with a greater emphasis on form and athletic fashion,” and the latter seems aimed at families with a focus on passenger and cargo space.
General Motors plans to launch 20 new electric vehicles by 2023, and the first-ever Chevrolet electric truck seems like a great way to usher in a new era of electrification. To learn more about the present and the future of Chevrolet and Buick, visit Cecil Atkission GM in Kerrville, Texas.
